Letter from Lois

I googled “Cabin Fever”.  Wikipedia has this to say:  “…claustrophic reaction that takes place when a person or group ends up in an isolated or solitary location or stuck indoors…”  Happens to me every, single year!  Now I stroll through my garden beds looking for life.  There finally are daffodils, hyacinths, little grape hyacinths and even a few sprouts on some of my shrubs showing hope of Spring, the continuing of life!

At From the Heart there are also signs of new life…in the form of teaching situations and workshops.  We have our first library teaching session of the year on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at Tuckahoe Library.  We’ll begin about 10:30 and stay until noon.  We’ll be teaching beginning knitting to about 15 folks so please, if your morning is free we will certainly welcome your help with this one!

Also new, Clover Hill Library is forming a morning stitching group.  Their first gathering will be February 13, 2017 from 11 until 1 p.m.
All knitters and crocheters are welcome!

Our Appalachian sweater project has begun.  I hope we are on our way to a great number of beautiful, warm sweaters to surprise these very special men, women and children.  This is our way of letting them know we truly care.  Project helpers are at the shop most Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 until 2 and Saturdays starting at 2.   We’ve schedule about 5 weeks for this program.  This should continue until  the end of February.  If you find you need help with your sweater stitching, just come on in and we’ll do our best to figure out your problem.  And even if it’s just a pat on the back for stepping out of your scarf/blanket box, we can do that too! 

I’m including here a picture of my inspiration.  It may only be February but these little ladies, right by my front sidewalk, give me confidence that Spring is just around the corner!

Come by the shop often!  Show off your projects and keep in mind…It is so wonderful to inspire others!  See you soon!
